Serving others — the greatest freedom

Question from the Internet:

“Why do some people make poor decisions constantly despite having many opportunities in life?”

Because we are not actually making conscious decisions.

Our individual life, Humanity’s history is a blind, instinctive chain of recurring cycles, falling into the same traps, making the same mistakes, committing the same crimes again and again.

This is because we are driven by an inner software, that makes 100% self-serving, self-justifying, subjective decisions on totally egocentric “pleasure/pain calculations”.

Of course most of us are unaware of this and believe as if we made those decisions, being surprised each time how come we end up in the same trouble, crisis, dead the each time.

Since we exist in a fully integrated, totally interdependent system, the only way of escaping the endless loop if failures - both individually and collectively - is to upgrade our inner software.
We need to learn how to make calculations for the sake of everything and everybody “outside of the self”, copying in ourselves Nature’s fully selfless, altruistic program.

And while it might sound as changing one form of “slavery” to another - instead of serving the selfish ego to serve others - there is no greater freedom than liberating ourselves from the original egotistic program, “Matrix”.

Through serving others, through sensing, perceiving, experiencing reality through the desires, needs of others we can enter a perfect, infinite, eternal, n-dimensional reality without the egocentric restrictions of time, space and physical motion.

And we can achieve this in a very realistic, tangible manner here and now!
